Episode Summary Edit
The episode begins with a recap of the appliance crash. The camera zooms into Echo 441 which has crashed into a steel girder. Recall looks at it and then passes out while Pearce wakes up and realises what has happened. Echo 442 is completely destroyed. Carole wakes up to the the voice of the dispatcher on the phone. George is unconscious.
Three months on from the appliance crash and the watch are still coming to terms with the appliance crash. Skip has left the Brigade because of his injuries and returned home to Australia. George is still on sick leave with a broken leg. Blue Watch have a new member: Gregg Blake. Pearce's divorce from Patti has finally come through, so Billy and Gregg hire a stripper for him to celebrate. However, Geoff does not see the funny side.
Carole gets a visit from the police, who inform her that her car has been involved in an accident in which a cyclist was injured and the driver didn't stop. The Watch attend a shout at an art gallery which has been flooded and Gregg chats up one of the students, Tiggy. Later, at a private railway where a girl is celebrating her birthday party, the train catches fire. There are numerous causalities and a near miss for Nick after a train pulls in while he is on the track searching for more casualties. Fortunately, he is able to take refuge in the gap under the train.
